If you didn't know, I'm a freelance developer. If you're looking for someone to do some mobile development, particularly on Windows Phone 7, then please get in touch.
Recently I've been doing some work for Microsoft. They're keen that I make it clear that anything I say on this blog, or via my Twitter account (@mrlacey) is entirely my own thought, opinion, etc.
Nothing I say here is the opinions of anyone but myself.
As far as I am concerned there is no conflict of interest with my continuing to run the Windows Phone User Group and do a short term contract with Microsoft. The group continues to remain an independent group. If you have any concerns over this then please let me know.
